A crash that caused a car to overturn multiple times left three people dead in Placer County on Sunday morning, according to the California Highway Patrol.
The California Highway Patrol officials said a BMW crashed in unincorporated Placer County, near Roseville, on westbound Vineyard Road, just west of Cook Riolo Road at around 1:50 a.m.
Officials said the car crashed into a power pole, causing the driver to lose control of the vehicle. The car then rolled over several times and hit a brick gate before stopping just south of the roadway.
First responders pronounced all three occupants of the vehicle dead at the scene. CHP described all three people as 21-year-old men from Roseville.
Officials said it is not known if drugs or alcohol were a factor in the crash and that a determination would be made by the Placer County Coroner's Office.
Those who knew the three men visited the crash site throughout the day Sunday to drop off flowers and pay their respects. That included Diana Gerus, who said she was good friends with one of the men who died.
"Going by here, it just seemed a lot more real, that one of my closest friends is gone, so it's kind of painful and it hurts," Gerus said. "Everyone will miss him, and no one will ever forget him."
